I went through a few years of not being able to write anything. It was the most awful experience and I really feel for anyone who's going throught that. This poem came from digging deep inside myself and remembering what it was like before I finally woke up one day and began pursuing my passion. It was a very personal journey that I took.


blank, white, nothingness,
surrounded me.
Each time I sat down,
I got up.
Unable to lend enough of myself
to a creation
that would speak volumes about me.
Sleeping imagination;
afraid to face my fear.
Fear of the void itself
and of not being able to fill it.
Afraid of bearing my blank, white soul
to a world of onlookers,
who waited in silence
for me to give them something tangible.
But I gave them only
blank spaces and empty words.
Dormant spirit,
waitied in the wings
to wake up
from my blank, empty, dreams.

Been there, done that too. Fortunately, I can switch between poetry, novels, and articles for publication. Different hats altogether, so that helps...or I just read for inspiration. Well done, Jessica.
